March 15-17, 2019
*We do have a few "rustic" options (winterized cabins, no electricity), please call our office (570-998-2151) if you would like to book a rustic option.
We all seek to invest more time into our families. But intentional time just seems to keep slipping by. Camp Susque invites you to come away for the weekend, let us do the dirty work, and carve out that much-needed family time. The weekend is geared to all ages and will be a great fit for families with small children, parents with adult children, and couples.
Our speaker will deliver messages geared for families. The rest of your weekend will be filled with scrumptious meals, a multitude of activities, and the ability to participate in as much or as little as you like. Let us serve you!
We are excited to welcome Jared Kennedy as our speaker this year! Jared is husband to Megan and father to Rachael, Lucy, and Elisabeth. He serves as Pastor of Families at Sojourn Church Midtown in Louisville, Kentucky, as Children's and Family Ministry Strategist for the Sojourn Network, and as an adjunct professor at Boyce College. He is author of The Beginner's Gospel Story Bible and co-author of the PROOF Pirates and Clap Your Hands, Stomp Your Feet Vacation Bible School curriculums. Jared contributes to @TGC, @ERLC, and @HeReadsTruth. He blogs regularly at gospelcenteredfamily.com
